Galileo engages every kid with hands-on projects that teach design-thinking and problem-solving skills, all wrapped in big summer fun. Energetic, inclusive, returning staff and world-class curriculum make for a summer that kids love, from Camp Galileo (pre-K – 5th grades) and Galileo Summer Quest (entering 5th – 8th grades), to our new Counselor-in-Training program (entering 7th – 10th grades).
At Galileo, we mix the fun of traditional day camp with thoughtfully crafted, hands-on projects in fields from science and engineering to the visual and culinary arts. Supported by our excellent staff and high-quality programming, campers grow with us from pre-K through 8th grade, emerging as confident creators ready to express themselves fearlessly and turn their ideas into reality. We call them Galileo Innovators, and they will change the world.
At Camp Galileo, Pre-K thru entering 5th graders find the perfect mix of summer camp fun and hands-on learning. Supported by the boundless energy and experience of the best staff around, campers craft extraordinary works of art and engineer incredible inventions. Plus, they spend plenty of time playing, exploring and building their teamwork skills outdoors.
